He's probably right.

President Donald Trump lashed out at Saturday Night Live's interpretation of his press conference in the Rose Garden announcing his intention to declare a national emergency for what he calls a crisis at the southern border.

Trump accused the show of airing Republican "hit jobs" and of being the "real collusion."


Now, actor Alec Baldwin—whose skewering portrayal of Trump has been lauded by nearly everyone but Trump himself—has taken the President's tweet calling for retribution as a threat to his and his family's safety.

Many understood his concerns.

It isn't far-fetched to fear that some of the President's supporters would pursue retribution on their own, influenced by the President's rhetoric.

Trump has repeatedly called for violence and humiliation to his detractors.

In October 2018, devout Trump supporter Cesar Sayoc mailed 13 bombs to various perceived enemies of the President including Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ), as well as to CNN.

Trump has frequently deployed harsh rhetoric against Baldwin and SNL on Twitter.

If his rhetoric continues unmitigated, it's only a matter of time before someone listens.
